Outstanding Les Paul for old fashioned players - Reviews Gibson Les Paul Florentine

Value For Money : Excellent Audience: Advanced Users
I play since 1959. and have owned some 50+ guitars; I still own about 25, 12 Gibson Les Pauls. This is the best one of all my guitars: Custom Shop Les Paul Silver Sparkle Florentine ... it has THE sound while all the rest is just like in the very best 1959 reissue Les Pauls (that I also have). OK, she is hollow, yet not as hollow as my ES-335 or ES-339 :-) The sound is more 'classic' jazz-pop rather than rock and certainly not metal even though she can handle ultra high gain very well. In reality she sounds at home in jazz, rock, blues and pop ... The tuning stability is remarkable, the sound is sweet and she plays like a dream. It will be almost impossible to separate myself from her ... oh, well :-)
